Oh, nevermind. It works! Better than Gallium even.

New Users / Peppermint 10 on Chromebook
« on: August 02, 2019, 01:58:06 pm »
I just installed Peppermint 10 on a Samsung Chromebook 3 and contrary to Gallium OS that has some issues everything seems fine on Peppermint, except one thing:

- Gallium seems to have the driver for the Chromebook keyboard and it is not standard.

I guess that the driver should be in the Lubuntu or Xubuntu repositories. I am just a beginner so I am not sure how to fetch it. The keyboard on the computer does not work neither does the thinkpad bluetooth keyboard. I plugged in a USB keyboard and I can get going with that but it would be a good thing to solve the keyboard driver issue. From Gallium OS I am sure that the driver is somewhere around.

Please help!

Firefox 64 yes.  (It updates automatically so I had no idea when it was,). This started happening recently.

I feel the same.  I forgot, this one has 8GB. It should be fine.

When it crashes I have to turn it off. It loops completely, nothing works. Not keyboard, or anything.
I saw the free -m before and it looks normal so I cannot say. Thought it would be worth mentioning the issue.

Thank you guys, keep enjoying your holidays.

Yes, DRM is enabled in Firefox. thank you. That was silly.
It seems to be DRM on Firefox. When streaming something very long it gets stuck (maybe more than an hour). Like a TV series say, without refreshing the page.
It does not seem to happen on Chrome.

While that is a workaround as pin was saying, it is a bit striking it gets the computer to crash (thanks by the way). My guess is that it blows the ram because it does not refresh it, but still should not be happening. It is the only thing that has made the computer crash. The rest is just a marvel.

hi all,
I am not sure what is happening. I did try reinstalling.

While playing on the broswer DRM content eventually the computer crashes, and loops (repeating a one half second part) and freezes completely. I am using an x1 and I am running tlp and powertop as one usually does. But not many other things. I also isolated the player on an ICE application and it still keeps happening. It was happening under Peppermint9 and on the respin it just did also. Maybe it is a hardware thing or the ram is flooding, I can't really tell.

Thank you for the comments.
